First Step

banana boatAre you and your child ready to take the “First Step”?

“First Step”– a 2 or 5 night introduction to Sleep Away Camp for your child entering grades 1 through 5 at Camp Nah-Jee-Wah, an all inclusive program for children almost ready to take the leap from day camp to sleep away

Your child experiences all that Camp Nah-Jee-Wah has to offer in a well supervised and purposefully planned program of either 2 or 5 nights.  Sports, Arts, Waterfront, Pools, Adventure and Science are offered providing your child with opportunities to choose his/her direction. Our nurturing and caring counselors assist your child throughout the entire stay through unpacking, learning new skills,  playing and making memories – your child is never alone.   You are able to view photos, receive e-mails and chat with staff during their stay.  We know that when First Step comes to an end, new skills are developed and lasting friendships and memories are formed. Our campers want to come back for more!
